About Joanne T. Gjelsten

Here's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.

I Graduated cum laude from New York Chiropractic College in 1995. On faculty there for 3 years, I also enjoyed my practice called Geneva Chiropractic in the Finger Lakes.

Moving back home to Rockland in 1998, I began my practice in Nyack and in Chestnut Ridge. I am lucky to be partnered and now married as of July 24th 2016, for 41 years, to a wonderful person!

Look for articles in Rivertown Magazine that I have written each month since 1998 called the ABC'S of Health. If you'd like a copy please call or e-mail me at drjog@optonline.net .

Family health, sometimes starting with pregnant Mom using the WEBSTER TECHNIQUE, is what I love to nurture. Anyone who knows me knows that all my patients get a hug on their way out the door. Health care with the emphasis on "CARE".
